Sunday NBA has a full slate of 12 games, and while this one may not be the most intriguing in terms of casual fandom, both teams have something to play for — even if those things are the exact opposite from one another.
With Philly playing for the lottery and Toronto playing for playoff seeding, these two have clear opposite agendas entering the contest.
There’s little reason to believe Toronto won’t come away with the win straight up, but with the line being set at -12.5, there’s legitimacy to asking if it can cover the spread.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
On the other hand, the Raptors are doing everything they can to maintain their status as the No. 3 team out East.
Falling to fourth would mean facing the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second round of the playoffs, assuming the Cavs do in fact regain their spot as the No. 1 seed.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Toronto ATS
A 12.5-point spread is a lot, even considering the opponent. That said, we’re assuming DeMar DeRozan goes off for a huge night and gives the Raptors the dominant victory we know they’re capable of getting.
Give this one to Toronto at home, and give it to them by a wide margin.
